Navigator Award....

It is sometimes a little hard to post information about yourself. While I was in Louisville, I was notified that I was selected as a finalist for the Navigator Award.

The Navigator is a student-driven recognition that acknowledges academic advising.

Just want to say, "Thank You" to whoever nominated me.

Alice Announces Retirement!

Our dear friend, Alice Duwe the CTE Coordinator for Business, Marketing, Computer Technology, and Health Science in Wichita announced this spring that she will be retiring at the end of the Fiscal Year.

Alice is an Alumni of the BUED Program at FHSU. She was a graduate student and held a graduate assistantship while attending FHSU.... the stories of the treats she made and brought into the office still float through the halls.

Through the years, Alice has provided support, technical assistance, insight, and friendship to a countless number of teachers across the state. Alice has worked tirelessly to promote and expand Business Education. While we are excited for her, we will miss her leadership in Kansas CTE.

Good Luck Alice!
